and took up an indei)endent field — Paint Kngineerinii'.

Preservation of Iron and Steel 

There are several theories on corrosion, each borne out l)\' practical experiments 
which seem to prove their loo;ic. We have concluded that each of these theories 
jKjssesses a grain of truth, hut the elaborate arguments pro and con are too academic 
and of no value for our purpose. Our aim is to make a paint for iron and steel that 
will not in itself corrode the metal or permit its corrosion by the elements. 

F'urthermore, Goheen Steel Paints are based upon scientihc principles which 
eliminate any of the reactions necessary to produce rust, according to the Carbonic- 
Acid Theory, the Hydrogen Peroxide Theory, the Electroh tic Theory, or an\' other 
theory which has come to our attention. For instance, all of the above theories 
reciuire the presence of water to promote corrosion. GOHEEX STEEL PAINTS 
are waterproof and eliminate this fundamental agent from entering into reactions 
that cause rust. 

The C^irbonic Acid Theor\- assumes that the (\irl)()n Di-Oxide in the air com- 
bines with the moisture naturally present, forming (^irbonic Acid, which acts on 
the metal to form a (Carbonate of Iron. This in turn is further decom[)osed by the 
air to form a hydrated iron oxide (rust) and liJHTates the (^irbon Di-Oxide to form 
more Carbonic Acid, and so on. 

The Hydrogen Peroxide Theory assumes the formation of Ihdrogcn Peroxide, 
which acts on the steel, gixing up its excess oxygen, to form the ru^t. 

The ElectroKtic Theory is !)ased on two po>sible reactions. One of these is due 
to the ])ossibilit>' of the i)aint him being a conductor, which would form an electric 
couple with the steel, which is also a conductor, resulting in decomposition of the 
l)aint, as well as the steel. Also, according to this theory if water reaches the surface 
of the steel, the normal amount of substance dissolved in it would be sufficient to 
make it a conductor of electricity and the numerous non-uniform portions of the 
steel surface would act toward each other like different metals. This is due to the 
fact that all steel is not absoluteh' homogeneous like alloys. The surface of the same 
piece of steel has points of var\ing coni{)()sitions, and these act toward each other as 
positive and negative electric poles, resulting in solution of the metal and precipita- 
tion of rust. 

The Electrolytic Theory (which we believe to be the most plausible) depends on 
the fact that steel has a solution tension which is stimulated by certain pigments 
(acidic pigments) and retarded b\' others (basic pigments). 

GOHEEX STEEL PAINTS are based on pigments whose ba>icit\- is higher 
than any other pigment known to science. 

GOHEEN STEEL PAINTS are non-conductors of electricit\- and will not react 
with steel; they are inhibitive as well as protecti\'e. 

An Inhibiti\'e Pigment is one which retards the tendency of the steel to go into 
solution, as compared with a Stimulati\e Pigment which encourages this process.

Goheen's Paint Engineering Policy 

We have been Paint Engineers to lar-e Industrials, Pul)lic L'tilities and Rail- 
roads since 1888. Our policy is a decided departure from the ordinary plan of mixinc 
and grinding paints. 

GOHEEN'S products are all made from laboratory tested materials and each 
product has been thoroughly tried out on the job during the many years it has been 
on the market. 

GOHEEN'S products are reasonably priced, due to our scientific methods and 
our ]X)licy of doing a \olumc business.

Mill White Paint 

GOHEEX'S MILL WHITK is a superior grade of white coating for all interior 
surfaces in Industrial Plants, Public Buildings, Offices, Institutions, Residences, etc. 

It is unafifected l)y the sun's ra\s, and does not darken or yellow from indoor 
exposure. It remains white exen after long ser\*ice and because of its hard non-por- 
ous surface, it reflects the greatest possible amount of light and resists dust and dirt. 
It is easily washed, like tile, and is good for many years of efficient service. It con- 
tains no lead and is therefore non-poisonous and can be spra\'ed. It is made in the 
gloss, flat and eggshell. 

GOHEEX'S MILL \\'HITE is mildlv acid and fume proof. Where severe 
conditions prevail, we recommend GOHEEX'S Xo. 2005 FLME PROOF WHITE. 

The modern i)ractice in interior MILL WHITE painting is to use a darker color 
DADO on side walls and columns. This i)revents the soiling or marring which 
would occur on a white surface, gives a better oi)tical effect to the room and repre- 
senting but a relatively small part of the painted surface and that below the level of 
the eye, it does not perceptibly diminish the light reflection of the white walls and 
ceiling. 

(lOHEEX'S DADO PAIXTS are made with a high gloss. Thev can be made 
with an eggshell finish if desired and like all of GOHEEX'S IXTERIOR PAIXTS, 
they can be washed or scrul)bed to remox'e dirt or grease without destroying the 
paint film and the paint, after such cleaning, assumes the original finish and appear- 
ance. 

In the color cards which are attached to this book, we have prepared a chart 
showing standard colors. However, should special colors be desired on any of the 
paints for steel, wood, concrete or enamels, we can supply the paints to meet any 
specific shade. Either send a sample of the shade desired or advise us as to the shade 
and we will match it in any of the paints recf nested. 

If at any time any special conditions arise, we would be pleased to solve same 
for you and furnish you with full details in a form that can be attached to this book.

(c) Galvanized Iron 



First Coat— I'se dOHKEX'S GALX'AXL'M PAIXT in any of the 
shades listed below. GALX'AXTM is the one outstanding paint 
noted for its ability to adhere to galvanized iron. GALX^ANUIVl 
forms a strong, enduring, elastic bond. With GALWAXUM no pre- 
liminary treatment of the surface is necessary. No acid wash. No 
red lead or j^rimer. No "weathering." Juat GALWAX^l'M which is 
both a i)riming and a finishing coat — and nothing else. It is applied 
directly to the metal. (^ALX'AXUlM NO. 5 is especialh' recom- 
mended as the first coat. 

Second and Third Coats — Over GALWAXTM in shade selected, 
apply a second coat of GALWANUM in shade desired. Two coats 
are usually sufficient but for maximum durai^ilit\' three coats are

Highway Red for New Work 

Of the two shades of HIGHWAY RED shown on the prexious page, the use of the Standard 
or Dark shade is recommended. The Standard shade can be used also as a finishing coat. 

HIGHWAY RED, Red Lead shade, was brought out for users who wanted a Red Lead 
Paint which would remain in suspension, give a large covering capacity and a uniform coating. 
It is not recommended for use unless a protective finishing coat, such as CARBONIZING 
COATING, is to be used. 



Specially prepared colors are also a\'ailable, as follows: 



Yellow 


No. 2028 


Red 


No. 2000 


Brown 


No. 2026 



Battleship Gray 
Bottle Green 
Black 



No. 2025 
No. 2001 
No. 2027 




APAiNT FOR ALL HOT SURFACES 
AND STACKS 



In erecting more than one building at a time different colors should be chosen so that steel 
arriving for two different jobs will not be confused. 

These colors and numbers designated are shop coats. 

The field coats should be our CARBONIZING COATING— BATTLESHIP GRAY or any 
of the above shades— or whatever paint is recommended in this chart. 

The painting of hot surfaces has been an expense 
and nuisance to the majority of plant operators, due 
to the fact that no consideration was gi\en to the 
adaptability of the coating used. 

Custom or lack of knowledge has caused the use 
of asphaltum or linseed oil paints to be popularly 
used as heat resisting coatings for metal, whereas 
neither is adaptable. 

Linseed Oil cannot withstand abnormal heat and 
readily burns up, leaxing the pigment to crumble 
and dust away. Asphaltum or coal tar paints will 
withstand greater heat than linseed oil, but cannot 
withstand the action of the elements, and deterio- 
rate rapidh- under the sun's rays. Furthermore, it 
is an established fact, that asphaltum or coal t.ir 
ha\'e no protective qualities whatever; Bitumasiic 
Products usualK- incite rather than retard corrosion. 

THKRMOKOTK accomplishes the desired re- 
sult, combining as it docs the various ingredients in 
the proper proportion> and treated in a manner to 
produce a perfect combiucition to resist extreme 
temperatures.

Goheen's Flat Wall Finish 



Has the Washability of Enamel 
Without the Glare 

The time is past when the painting- of in- 
terior walls was looked upon as a matter of 
little importance. Today we all know that 
not appearance alone, but, more important 
still, health itself depends to a great extent 
on the selection of the proper wall finish. 

The spread of modern ideas of sanitation 
has been as largely responsil)le for the suc- 
cess of GOHEEN'S FLAT WALL FINISH 
as the unusual beauty and restfulness of its 
soft velvet-like colors. 

From their very nature, wallpapers cannot 
Be sanitary. They are in themselves porous 
and held in place with pastes made of vege- 
table matter which are ideal breeding places 
for germs, and wallpapers, of course, cannot 
be w^ ashed. 

Cold water paints, too, besides being only 
temporary, are almost as unsanitary as 
paper, since they contain glue, casein, dex- 
trine, and similar organic substances on 
which bacteria feed and multiply. 

White lead points were for a long time 
looked upon as harmless for interior paint- 
mg. We know better toda>'. We know that 
lead-poisoning can often be traced to their 
use. England, France, and Belgium have 
legislated against the use of white lead for 
interior painting. 

( .OHEEN'S FLAT WALL FINISH con- 
tains no lead and no organic matter — noth- 
ing that can be harmful to health, or offer a 
breeding place for germs. 

(.OHKEN'S FLAT WALL FINISH is as 

washable as an enamel. Not only is it wash- 
able, but, while being absoluteh' glareless, it 
gives a uniform surface which does not aitch 
and hold the dirt. 



G0HEP:N'S flat wall finish is 

not made of ordinary oil, as are other wall 
finishes, but of specially treated oil. Oil and 
pigment are chemically combined, not sim- 
ply mechanically mixed. Hence it dries flat 
without the use of excess thinners which take 
the life from the oil, leaving the pigment 
without sufficient binder to hold it together 
and quickK' causing the paint to peel or 
flake. 

GOHEEN'S FLAT WALL FINISH is the 
most permanent you can buy. It will give 
five years or more service on interior walls. 
It retains the original color even when ex- 
posed to strong sunlight. 

This permanence, combined with great 
covering capacity, makes GOHEEN'S FLAT 
WALL FINISH the most economical prod- 
uct of its kind. It covers 500 to 800 square 
feet per gallon, depending upon the charac- 
ter of the surface. 

GOHEEN'S FLAT WALL FINISH has 
good body, brushes freely, levels perfectly, 
and dries over night to a firm, uniform finish 
—sanitary, permanent, glareless. 

GOHEEN'S FLAT WALL FINISH is 
applicable to ])laster, wood, brick, terra 
cotta, tile, or artificial lumbers. It should be 
used for residences, schools, offices, auditori- 
ums, hosi)itals and other i)ul)lic l)uildings. 

There is nothing else that can equal its
